Simple Steps to Adopting a Dog at Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue’s Super Adoption Event

December 3rd, 2014 Written by | Comments Off on Simple Steps to Adopting a Dog at Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue’s Super Adoption Event

Pitbulls, and terriers, and labs — oh my! In a weekend long adoption event taking place December 12 through December 14, hosted by Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, people will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of  mixed-breed rescued dogs to bring home.

Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, a non-profit, all-volunteer based organization, is dedicated to finding homes for dogs that have been rescued from pounds in the rural South. Since 2011, the “Badass Team” has rescued over 1,300 dogs from pounds in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Kentucky, which are known for killing most dogs at their facilities, and using inhumane tactics such as gas chamber killings.

In an effort to promote adoption and raise money to rescue and rehabilitate more dogs, the organization is partnering with Best Friends Animal Society to hold the longest and largest event since the inception of Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue.

To ensure that the dogs find suitable, loving homes, prospective adopters are asked to fill out an application prior to the event.

The application begins with simple questions, then delves deeper into personal questions regarding past history of pet ownership and what the future may hold for the adopted dog.

To gain approval, one must meet certain requirements. According to the adoption policy on the organization’s website, “In order to adopt a pet, you must be at least 23 years old, be able to provide references and one form of government issued identification, consent to a home visit, pay the adoption fee and agree to all terms of the adoption application and contract.”

Upon getting approved, a person simply has to attend the adoption event at the Brooklyn Expo Center, where he or she will be able to choose the dog that they wish to bring home. There is an adoption fee of $450, which “covers vetting, boarding, spay/neuter (if over 6 months), transportation from the rescued kill shelter, collar, leash and Badass adoption package.”

Can’t wait for the event? You can take a look at the “Badass Available Dogs” photo album on their Facebook page, where many of the dogs that will be at the event are listed. *SPOILER ALERT* – They’re all really cute.

If you cannot attend the event, make sure to read the next follow up post, which will document what occurred at the event.

Fri, Dec 12, 2014 – Sun, Dec 14, 2014
11am-4pm

Brooklyn Expo Center
79 Franklin Street
Brooklyn, NY, 11222

Cauz for Pawz: Gramercy Thrift Shop Bridges Fashion and Animal Rescue

November 10th, 2014 Written by | Comments Off on Cauz for Pawz: Gramercy Thrift Shop Bridges Fashion and Animal Rescue

Designer clothing, handbags, shoes, jewelry, home décor, and animal rescue organizations. What do these all have in common? The answer is absolutely nothing, until you step foot into Gramercy’s trendy thrift shop, Cauz for Pawz.

The store, located at 212 East 23rd Street, may appear like other thrift shops surrounding it, presenting its latest merchandise on the mannequins, visible to passerbys from the front windows. However, this store has set itself apart from the rest, vowing its dedication to helping and protecting animals in need. Cauz for Pawz generates revenue by selling gently used items, ranging from clothes, to accessories, to home furnishings, which “provides animal welfare organizations, rescues and no-kill shelters with financial funds and supplies,” according to its website.

Some of the recipients of these funds include organizations such as Woof NYC Dog Rescue, Ferils in Peril, Riddles Elephant Sanctuary, Mighty Mutts, Out of the Pitts, Social Tees Animal Rescue, and Hooves and Paws Rescue. The “Wall of Fame” displays photographs of local animals that belong to owners who support the efforts of Cauz for Pawz or have made a contribution of any kind. In the center of the collage of photos rests a list of organizations that the store has donated to, however, since the shop’s grand opening in 2010, Cauz for Pawz has donated funds to over 40 no-kill shelters throughout the country.

Cathryn Duhigg, a lifelong animal lover and the owner of Cauz for Pawz, opened the shop thinking that it would simply be a store dedicated solely to raising money for shelters. With time, this vision took a bit of a turn, as people began to view the store as a haven for animals in need. Currently, the store acts as a home to Buster, a Chihuahua mix that was abandoned and left to die in the backyard of a Queens home. A regular customer and friend of Duhigg, who wishes to remain anonymous, was horrified to find the condition in which Buster was left, and immediately brought him to the store. Today, Buster spends most of his days prancing around the upper level of the store, or lying behind the counter watching the customers as they pass by. Duhigg is in the process of finding Buster a permanent home, but in the meantime he seems quite comfortable just where he is.

Love animals? Love fashion? Look no further than 23rd Street between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.

Designer clothing, handbags, shoes, jewelry, home décor, and animal rescue organizations. What do these all have in common? The answer is absolutely nothing, until you step foot into Gramercy’s trendy thrift shop, Cauz for Pawz.

At first glance, the store may appear like any other thrift shop until you take a closer look behind the counter. How many stores have you been to lately where a tiny dog sits by the register? Currently, the store acts as a home to Buster, a Chihuahua mix that was abandoned and left to die in the backyard of a Queens home. An anonymous customer and friend of Cathryn Duhigg, owner and founder of Cauz for Pawz, was horrified to find the condition in which Buster was left, and immediately brought him to the store. Today, Buster spends most of his days prancing around the upper level of the store, or lying behind the counter watching the customers as they pass by. Duhigg is in the process of finding Buster a permanent home, but in the meantime he seems quite comfortable just where he is.

Although Buster has been the main attraction lately, the store offers much more than a cute dog to gawk over. What makes Cauz for Paws so unique is its dedication to helping and protecting animals in need. Cauz for Pawz generates revenue by selling gently used items, ranging from clothes, to accessories, to home furnishings, which “provides animal welfare organizations, rescues and no-kill shelters with financial funds and supplies,” according to its website.

Some of the recipients of these funds include organizations such as Woof NYC Dog RescueFerils in PerilRiddles Elephant SanctuaryMighty MuttsOut of the PittsSocial Tees Animal Rescue, and Hooves and Paws Rescue. The “Wall of Fame” displays photographs of local animals that belong to owners who support the efforts of Cauz for Pawz or have made a contribution of any kind. In the center of the collage of photos rests a list of organizations that the store has donated to, however, since the shop’s grand opening in 2010, Cauz for Pawz has donated funds to over 40 no-kill shelters throughout the country.

The success generated by this one store can be attributed to the devotion of Duhigg, a lifelong animal lover and owner of several adopted pets, opened the shop thinking that it would simply be a store dedicated solely to raising money for shelters. With time, this vision took a bit of a turn, as people began to view the store as a haven for animals in need, which explains Buster’s temporary stay in the shop.

North Shore Animal League: America’s Largest No-Kill Adoption Organization Saves Lives

October 19th, 2014 Written by | Comments Off on North Shore Animal League: America’s Largest No-Kill Adoption Organization Saves Lives

“I saw him sitting all alone in his own cage in the corner, and I knew that I wouldn’t be leaving the place without him,” said Susan Perdoch, a resident of Little Neck, New York.

Perdoch was explaining her experience as she walked through North Shore Animal League for the first time. The dog she was describing is Riley, her black Labrador retriever mix, who is now five years old and an integral member of the family. Hearing her story hit especially close to home, as my first pet was a blonde Labrador retriever from North Shore Animal League.

“As soon as we brought him home he started running around the house and jumping on everything. We knew he’d be a perfect fit for this crazy family,” added Olivia Perdoch, Susan Perdoch’s daughter.

Riley is now in good health, however when the Perdoch family first encountered him at the shelter, he was undergoing treatment for parvovirus, a disease common among dogs from puppy mills. Parvovirus is a highly contagious viral disease that attacks dividing cells and white blood cells in a dog’s body. If the virus remains untreated, it may result in irreversible damage to the intestinal tract, as well as lifelong cardiac problems.

When Riley was taken to his new home, he had to continue taking antibiotics to combat the disease. Thankfully, North Shore Animal League has on on-site veterinary medical center, fully equipped with a highly trained medical staff, where Riley had been nursed back to health before going to a new home.

It is not uncommon to find out that someone’s pet was adopted from North Shore Animal League, as the website boasts that since 1944, the organization has saved the lives of over one million dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens to date. It is widely known for its policy against the use of euthanasia, as the volunteers and staff focus their efforts on rehabilitation for animals in all conditions.

North Shore Animal League, located in Port Washington, New York, is the largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. Today it ranks as one of the most reputable adoption services in the New York area, however this widespread notoriety did not occur overnight.

The organization acts as a pioneer in the field of adoption, as it has implemented several new innovations that have influenced similar and nearby adoption agencies. It rose to prominence, especially within the last 20 years, through the use of advertising, a tactic that was never before used for adoption purposes.

Perhaps the most revolutionary program was the Pet Adoptathon, an event in which the doors of the establishment were kept open for 36 hours on end in an effort to gain attention and promote adoption. After receiving praise from the press, other shelters observed the success of the event and launched their own, turning it into an annual event that generates nationwide participation. According to North Shore Animal League’s website, “Today, over 2,000 shelters in the U.S., and in 26 other countries, join us for Pet Adoptathon with one common goal – to join forces and adopt over 20,000 animals into permanent homes over a single weekend.”

The organization emphasizes its mission to save the lives of innocent animals and reduce animal cruelty, while simultaneously promoting adoption as an accessible, worthwhile choice. If anyone is interested in adopting a dog or cat, a trip to North Shore Animal League almost guarantees that you will come home with one. After all, how could you leave the place empty handed after seeing a face like this…

Long Island’s Petite Pets Puppy Boutique Combats Puppy Mill Menace

October 17th, 2014 Written by | Comments Off on Long Island’s Petite Pets Puppy Boutique Combats Puppy Mill Menace

“We decided not to adopt a dog because we were afraid of the health problems it could have,” said Stacy Lockwood, my mother and one of the biggest animal lovers I know. “I never expected that our ‘purebred Maltese’ would become blind at the age of two, develop an underactive thyroid at the age of three, and pass away at the age of five,” she said about our former dog, Lacey.

This is the unfortunate fate that many dogs, born and bred in puppy mills, will face. It is estimated by the Humane Society of the United States that there are at least 10,000 mills in the United States alone, and more than two-thirds of them operate without enforced regulations. As someone who has dealt with the untimely loss of a pet, I understand the frustration that one may feel toward breeders.

Puppy mills work similarly to factories that exist for the purpose of mass production. They function in such a way as to produce a maximum amount of puppies for sale, while disregarding the welfare of the dogs performing the breeding. According to the ASPCA’s website, “A puppy mill is a large-scale commercial dog breeding operation that places profit over the well-being of its dogs—who are often severely neglected—and acts without regard to responsible breeding practices.”

Lacey, a dog my family purchased from a local pet shop, and I circa 2001. (Photo by Stacy Lockwood)

From these mills, at as young as eight weeks of age, the puppies are then sold to pet shops and are put on the market. It is often hard to tell whether or not a puppy is the product of a puppy mill at such an age, however severe health problems usually manifest themselves within a few years, or even just a few months. The most common of these problems include epilepsy, heart disease, kidney disease, musculoskeletal disorders, endocrine disorders, blood disorders, deafness, eye problems, and respiratory disorders.

“After going through a loss that I was clearly not prepared for, I knew that I would never get another dog unless I was sure that it was coming from a safe, reputable place.”

At four years of age, Lacey had completely lost her vision and developed an underactive thyroid. (Photo by Stacy Lockwood)

A few months after Lacey’s death, the pet shop we had purchased her from, known as the American Kennel Club, had shut down overnight with no explanation. There now stands a new pet shop at the location, but to this day, the cause of the shutdown remains unknown.

When my family began considering welcoming a new dog to our home, we were referred to a pet store called Petite Pets Puppy Boutique, a store in Huntington Station, New York, dedicated to small toy breeds. After just one visit we were proud to introduce Delilah, a two-pound yorkie and poodle mix, to the family.

At almost seven years old, Delilah is still in excellent health.

Petite Pets Puppy Boutique sets itself apart from traditional pet stores by partnering only with breeders that they have visited and have deemed acceptable. As seen on the website, the only breeders the store maintains relationships with operate with “the utmost integrity.” They ensure that any dogs entering the store come from breeders that “do not inbreed or over-breed. They especially do not re-breed any congenital problems.”

Barbara Maple, who founded the store in 1983, commented, “I treat each and every dog like family, as if they were my own.” This is clear from the unyielding attention that the puppies in the store receive while they rest and play in baby cribs instead of cages. She added, “I won’t let my babies go to any home that I think will be unfit because they all deserve a future filled with love and happiness.”

Anyone who purchases a dog from the shop receives a pedigree certificate, listing where the puppy was bred, as well as information regarding the puppy’s parents. With an extensive list of satisfied customers, it is clear that the legitimate and thorough practices of the store generate great success.

Although purchasing a dog from Petite Pets Puppy Boutique is not technically considered a means of adoption, it is a possible alternative that one may seek. While pet adoption and rescue are perhaps the best choices to make a difference in an animal’s life, buying from reputable pet shops such as this one is just as effective in fighting the war on puppy mill prominence.
